My CO2 Freshwater Planted Aquarium

Hi there, have just joined- i was invited to this forum after someone saw a picture of my tank on myspace, so i thought what better way to make your first post than to submit the picture that brought me to this forum.

I havent been keeping up with water changes this last month, and its just had a trim, it will be looking alot better at the end of the month, hope you like it, well here it is.

I dont know bout a trim, it was trimmed bout 5 weeks back, i think it needs a while before its next trim, i need new tubes i think- might envigorate more growth!
This is only the begining- i have an amano plan for growth!

Hello and welcome aboard, Andrew.

I was thinking about Takashi Amano, Andrew. Your tank beats some of Amano's any day.

You'll have a great load of beauty added if discus are in it. And then some rummy-nose tetras and diamond tetras.

its not that big 180 litres, i havae kept discus before but they are too much hassle and feeding bloodowrm every day is large load for a planted aquarium.
here is a pic of how the tank used to look.



i am not a fan of rummies, i am when i am ready going to put in 50 cardinals- all lil babies and grow them on to a might impressiive shoal.
I have kept so many species of fish, you cant help but marvel at a healthy shoal of deep red cardinals in a deep green tank- once the tank is emerald green in go the fish lol :) hopefully christmas time.
